|Locomotive, Greenfield Village, Michigan|
Tuesday, July 8, 2014
This is the fourth or fifth post I've done recently from Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan in as many days. Today's post is from their locomotive repair shop. The Village has a number of working steam engine locomotives and a staff that maintains and restores them. We got to the shop late in the day and didn't have much time but I did get a number of really cool photos, including this one. Nothing fancy about this - moderately wide aperture, find an interesting angle and shoot. Just a single exposure and some modifications of contrast and clarity in Adobe Lightroom. Shot it handheld, of course. When traveling with family and kids I never use a tripod, too much to mess with and carry around.m Also, I tend to keep a really wide lens on the camera for days like this. That means for shots like this you can get really, really close to what you're shooting.
